I have 2 spools Ribbon 1/2" wide blue and maroon Vintage Item. One is a medium blue and one maroon, both of them are 1/2". I am selling them wholesale, the full rolls. I would estimate there would be between 8 - 12 yards on each of them. The ribbon looks like it may be taffeta - it could have a blend of fibers, I'm not sure. There are a series of pin holes in the ribbons from where a 1/2" pin has secured it for years, this would not go through the full roll. I tried to show the pin holes in my photo's. I'm not sure if by wetting this you could get the fibers to hide the holes or not. The holes get smaller as the roll is unwound. They both measure about 2 5/8" across the center of the ribbon spools with the wood centers being about 1 3/8" across.
